Driver release November 16.3.18-5

Postby kbittell » Sat 10. Dec 2016, 22:37

Wacom's newest drivers have problems with pen and touch control interacting. Especially noticeable with Abode Illustrator. Simultaneous contact of the pen and touch with the screen causes loss of control and the screen flashing and jumping randomly. I find the workaround of disabling touch to be unacceptable.
Wacom support told me the new drivers were set up this way to support new products and software designed for simultaneous use of touch and pen. Support also agreed they may not have given adequate consideration to current products and tools. And suggested these issues may be addressed in the next drive release.
Are there other users adversely affected by this release that would care to comment on this issue?

As far as I know, the problem does not show, if you are using an older version of Illustrator, or OSX 10.11, or Wacom driver 6.3.15, but happens if you have newer versions for OSX and Illustrator and tablet driver. Of course we are looking to fix this.

Wacom released a new driver yesterday, 6.3.19-3, that has corrected the issues identified in my original post. Thank You Wacom
